Binary Literals

Java added a new feature Binary Literal in Java 7. I allows you to express integral types (byte, short, int, and long) in binary number system. To specify a binary literal, add the prefix 0b or 0B to the integral value.

In the following example, we are creating binary literals from integral values.

Binary Literal Example

Output:

----------Binary Literal in Byte----------------
b1 = 5
b2 = 5
----------Binary Literal in Short----------------
s1 = 5
s2 = 5
----------Binary Literal in Integer----------------
i1 = 5
i2 = 5
----------Binary Literal in Long----------------
l1 = 2017
l2 = 2017

Binary Literal Example 2

In this example, we are creating negative binary, using underscore in binary literals and manipulating as well.

Output:

b1 = 5
b2 = 5
b3 = -5
b4 = 10
is b1 and b2 equal: true
b2 + 1 = 6
b3 + 1 = -4
b4 x 2 = 20
